Like many other early Quakers, John Crook (1617-1699) was a seeker of truth from his earliest days. He was educated in London, and for a time held the office of Justice of the Peace in Bedfordshire, but when he was convinced of the truth in 1654 by the preaching of William Dewsbury, he soon lost both his public office and his freedom. In all, John Crook was imprisoned ten times for his faith, and suffered greatly at “the hands of unreasonable men.” In this selection from his writings, he relates his early searching after God, his convincement of and growth in the truth, and some of his ministerial labors in the early Society of Friends.

Friends Library Publishing exists to freely share the writings of early members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), believing that no other collection of Christian writings more accurately communicates or powerfully illustrates the soul-transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
